Concluding Snowcoming week was Ugly Sweater Day on Friday, December 16th. Students were encouraged to dig up their “ugly” and festive sweaters to show their true Christmas spirit. Some sweaters were laced with garland and tinsel, and others lit up like a Christmas tree.

The pep rally was held later that day in the main gym. Featured were the ugly sweater contestants, and based on crowd excitement and cheers, a winner was chosen: Senior John Herron.

Continuing, teachers and staff participated in a “Twelve Days of Christmas” reenactment. Superintendent Ann Linson and Principal Kathy Longenbaugh portrayed the “Partridge in a Pear Tree,” counselor Lindy Munson hula-hooped with five golden rings, and so on.

The jazz band and show choir both performed traditional Christmas songs to help everyone become excited for winter break while the snowman challenge was held. Students and teachers in groups of five or six were to dress one team member as a snowman; which included being wrapped in toilet paper, wearing a carrot nose made of paper, and a top hat to complete the ensemble. This was the perfect ending of school before winter break began!
